#EmotionRevolution for a Kinder Tomorrow

Last month, over 45,000 high school students from across the nation took the #EmotionRevolution survey, launching a youth-led movement to build a positive school climate. Along with the Born This Way Foundation and the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence, we are all a part of the shared vision for a kinder tomorrow!
From coverage in Education Week to USA Today to Time, the #EmotionRevolution is already making a splash — and they're just getting started! 
Their work has led to a unique opportunity for young people to attend the Emotion Revolution Summit in October 2015. Using YOUR feedback, they're bringing together educators, academics, policy makers, and the fearless leaders of it all, Cynthia Germanotta and Lady Gaga, for a historic gathering to hear how young people currently feel in their schools, how they want to feel and what support they need to bridge that important gap.
Not only will the summit offer participants the chance to share their own experiences, it will also serve as the launch of a Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) Resource Center. In partnership with Facebook, this center will arm students with tools they can use to build happy, healthy and productive lives. 
Lady Gaga has said, “I think tolerance and acceptance and love is something that feeds every community.”  We couldn’t agree more.  But we can’t get there without you. Apply to attend the Emotion Revolution Summit. A kinder, braver world is possible and we hope you’ll play a part in the building of it.
